Re: Need advice for 1 year old Beekeeper from San Diego, CA
My hives here in Reno are very gentle right now. they are busy on the warm days and actually foraging on something. I now have on hive I just cut out yesterday and the day before. they are of course mad as all get out and I can't go near them. There defense response is well beyond overload. I got a sting on my finger last night just resting my hand on the hive. I am pretty sure they don't like me any more. probably never will for this generation.
I also had to deal with a couple of queenless nucs last summer. and they where both aggressive until they where queen right again.
